As a matter of fact, we have had close calls with gators many times! Doesn't matter if it's daytime or nighttime. They like to travel from pond to pond down here, so we just take it matter of fact. Kind of like rounding a corner and having a buzzard or turkey in the way. Only they don't have a mouth full of teeth!

Congratulations and thanks for sharing your milestone with this community, I'm sure I would continue to celebrate it with something like the window sticker on your windshield. Also I have enjoyed many U-Tube videos that you 2 have produced over the years, most of all it appears as if y'all enjoy yourselves on those trips.
Keep up the good work, and shoot for another 100,000.

Ride it if you can, mod it if you can't!

No, I changed them at 60,000 miles. They were still good but we were getting ready for a long trip and I wanted the peace of mind. We ride in some bad elements sometimes.

Congratulations. All those miles in the CTX makes me confident on my own motorcycle (CTX also) to travel to Canada soon. I am riding all the Lake superior and see what else is around there. Congratulations again.

Well Thumper had replaced the rear tire a couple weeks back and I'm replacing the front one this weekend due to cupping on it and I'm going to give the beads a 2nd chance so will see. I'll report back 🧐.
